Time to reinvigorate Newlyn Fish Festival!

Following two fallow years and the Newlyn Fish Festival committee’s recent decision to hand over the baton, Newlyn Pier and Harbour Commissioners (NPHC) aim to reinvigorate this popular annual fundraiser for the Fishermen’s Mission if there is sufficient interest from local fishermen, fish suppliers and chefs to help transform it into an even more dynamic celebration of the sea, Cornish seafood and Cornwall’s proud fishing heritage.

Harbour Master and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Rob Parsons is now seeking expressions of interest from local partners to form a new committee with the aim of assessing the viability of reintroducing the event in the future.

“Newlyn Fish Festival is an action-packed, one-day event that has attracted thousands of visitors to our historic harbour for 26 years, raising an impressive £250,000 for the Fishermen’s Mission in the process,” explains Rob. “The previous committee has done an incredible job but feels it is now time for someone else to take the helm. As Harbour Master, I feel it is my responsibility to do so if there is sufficient interest from the local fishing industry and other interested parties to work with us to create an event that builds on the successes of the past and sustains it for the future.”

The Harbour Commissioners’ recently transformed Newlyn Fish Market would provide a new-look Fish Festival with more space, improved facilities and enhanced insight into the Cornish fishing industry, which the Harbour Master believes to be even more important in this era of Brexit-related uncertainty.

“The Harbour Commissioners are committed to providing fit-for-purpose facilities and services that support the development and sustainability of the local fishing industry and with all the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, it is even more vital for us to try and make a positive difference to the livelihoods of our hardworking fishermen, who go out to sea in all weathers to catch and land the best fish in the world,” Rob concludes. “We look forward to hearing from anyone who shares our vision to recalibrate this uniquely Cornish celebration that raises much-needed awareness of the Cornish fishing fleet and vital funds for the Fishermen’s Mission.
